As a teacher, Ben has worked diligently to instruct students on U.S. Government including state and local government. He works hard to prepare our next generation of leaders to be civically engaged and knowledgeable about the issues that affect their lives. He uses project based learning and a mock legislation unit to foster a sense of agency for his students. By running for office, Ben hopes to instill an even greater notion of possibility for his students in terms of how they can affect real change.
